Master Post of the best of the great “Show us your dick”-a-thon of 2014.
Here’s the previous one.
I have never hard those terms before. Fascinating
These are just the top ten, I got over 300 questions and learned more slang terms for penis than I ever imagined could exist.
I still want to bulk buy these and adonize batch pink.
Apart from being super cool - which it definitely is - the serrated side cuts through braided rope, and though I haven’t seen it in person I’d be willing to bet money the smallest (“flat phillips”) screwdriver picks handcuffs.
Ladies, this is an escape tool.

I am a practicing Catholic and I would like to be informed on facts, rather than whatever other Catholics are spouting as though it were dogma. I want to have an informed opinion. That being said, if it is not too much to ask, would you be so kind as to provide me with an explanation as to WHAT THE HECK is going on with Israel and Hamas at the moment, with citations, links, and/or videos helping to thoroughly argue your point? Thank you!
Wow, that’s a tall order miss. Here it is as simple and thorough as I can explain, but you’ll have to do a lot of reading to get the full story.
First off, I’d read up about the Kingdom of Israel, Exodus, and Canaan. The history behind ancient Israel and Judah are good to know too. These will give you some background into the ancient and religious history of the area which is now modern Israel. It is also important to note that these stories predate Islam.
Next I’d read up on the Palestinian Jews who were the first wave of Jews to emigrate from Europe and Asia to the Ottoman Empire occupied Israel (as well as to the United States.) Later it was owned by the British and then eventual became the State of Israel in 1948. During this time there was much conflict between the Jews and the Arabs who were living in the land after the Balfour Declaration, which culminated in the Arab-Israeli War after Israel became a state. Also, this is when the second wave of Jewish immigrants migrated to the area fleeing the war.
Then comes the 6-Day War in 1967 in which Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and even Iraq attacked Israel. This video explains much of what came from that battle:
Much of modern history has followed this same trend of violence from the Arabs in disputed areas as well as in nations surrounding Israel. You’ve probably heard the term from Democrats about “returning to the ‘67 borders.” This is all based on things that have happened since the 6-Day War such as when Israel removed settlements from Gaza and made numerous treaties and negotiations to the disputed land in the West Bank and Gaza. The truth is the Arabs do not want to negotiate. They want the annihilation of Israel. Here’s another great video explaining more:
You may have also heard of the “millions” of Palestinian refugees that were booted from Israel as well. Well, here’s another great video about what has really happened:
So, what of international support of Israel and Palestine? Well, the history of Jews has never been in their favor and that is not too different today. While the United States remains Israel’s biggest alley, it’s obvious that many ignorant liberals share that sentiment, which is strange considering Israel shares many ideals and policies that liberals fight for here. Many groups in the region are trying other methods to strangle Israel. The United Nations isn’t much help anymore either. Sadly, most people do not even know the real history of the Israel/Palestine conflict or just choose to ignore it.
Now, as for Palestine. Why aren’t they succeeding? That’s because they are being run by a terrorist organization, Hamas. Hamas doesn’t care about the Palestinian people, they only care about the destruction of the state of Israel, the annihilation of the Jews, and the end Western Culture in general. That policy takes precedence over the care of the people. This is plain to see in how Hamas operates their attacks against Israel, by firing unannounced rockets and mortar shells from civilian populated areas and using civilians as shields.
Israel has developed and been equipped by allies with a powerful defense and military force over the years. This is why most liberals (and some confused libertarians) tend to blame Israel in the conflict. They see the unequal amount of deaths in Palestine compared to Israel. What they don’t understand is that Israel is the epitome of restraint. The original term for the IDF’s policy of their first militia (the Haganah) was havlagah which meant “restraint.” They have gone out of their way to avoid casualties in the Gaza strip by directly avoiding civilians in bombing areas, operating a campaign to warn civilians prior to targeting areas, and using diplomacy to avoid war at any cost. They are not the problem, they are merely exercising their right to protect themselves. They are currently on the ground in Gaza trying to eliminate Gaza’s attempts to tunnel into Israel to attack or kidnap civilians.
The problem isn’t simple, but it is absolutely clear on who the aggressor is. There will be no negotiations or peace for the region when a group of terrorists and a greater community of nations do not want peace.
